Mo' Mog?

Is it just us, or is this whole recall election biz starting to sound like Watergate? Now that Moghtader has released his smoking gun to the Daily Cal (and a little late, we may add), the results of the recall may actually be more complicated than the recall itself. We didn’t even know that was possible.

Moghtader’s reasons for not releasing the tape earlier include:

The video is evidence in the libel suit he is pursuing; he wasn’t aware of allegations of his involvement until they were published; the video shouldn’t be used as a campaign tool but rather to serve “greater justice.”

Sounds like it ain’t over till someone gets sued. Attorney General Michael Sinanian has filed a suit with the ASUC Judicial Council claiming that proponents of the recall made purposely fallacious statements in the Daily Cal and that these statements violate the elections bylaw that deals with “serious ethical breaches.” And the J-Council has accepted the case–whether it has the authority to or not. If the suit is upheld, the recall attempt will be disqualified and Moghtader will keep his senate seat.

Lies, scandal, controversy over senate seats: sounds like the ASUC actually is a model for real government.
